    Here is a quick comparison of Build 16 RED ONE and a popular professional DSLR, the Canon 1D MKIII. I picked the 1D MKIII because it is the newest, highest quality Canon with an APS size sensor. I have cropped and scaled (slightly) the Canon to match the RED 2:1 format. I open the Canon file in Adobe RAW and opened the blacks because Adobe crushed them on open. Then I matched the two together (as best as possible) without inducing any weirdness. I have been doing this stuff a long time, so I am comfortable in the process. I encourage all of you to do similar tests on your own.

    I used a RED 50-150mm zoom and the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM zoom (newest version). Both were shot at ISO 320 and f5.6. I think I have successfully deleted the metadata, so that won't help you.

    Focus was on slight different parts of the pic... sorry about that. Makes you check more closely. :-)

    Please DO NOT copy these images and paste into a reply for bandwidth sake...

    You tell me which is which.

    Focus of "b" is slightly in front of "a". It was hard to focus the Canon... which ever one that was. :-)

    Hey Concrete,

    Are you saying that because you think the image is soft on the paint tubes on the bottom image ?

    As Jim say's, I think they're just slightly out of focus..

    They both have the type sharp on the chart. One has the tubes behind more in focus and the other has the small Canon pocket camera more in focus.

    Check the channels... compare the colors, measure the charts with your color meter.
